Georgia House Democratic Leader Stacey Abrams said there was no attempt to hide from the public $30,000 in consulting fees she received from Michelle Nunn’s senate campaign in 2013.
But Abrams received the payments through Myrina Strategies, a corporation set up under her younger sister’s married name and Abrams didn’t disclose her interest in the company on state forms until the AJC started asking questions.
The payments also came shortly before Abrams began work on a large – and personally lucrative – voter registration effort in 2014. The Nunn campaign saw a potential conflict with Abrams’ twin roles and Abrams left the campaign at the end of 2013.
Both Abrams and the Nunn campaign said the payments were disclosed legally.
